Yes, we both are probably a couple of the only original members of SSS.com! It was a pretty lively forum at times back then, with Dylan and Lee getting into pissing matches, with Lee eventually leaving because of it! lol
I was tiring of the SS and it's age was starting to show too. I had to have the top re-clear coated last year because it was peeling. And this spring I spotted what looks like another spot that might start peeling. It's has sat outside its whole life, so the weather was starting to take its toll on it. It was time.
You have a couple of great projects in the works there! Back in my high school days a buddy had a black vinyl over red 69 Charger R/T 440...it's a wonder I'm still alive to talk about it, we had some pretty crazy nights in it! Another buddy had a 69 Road Runner with the 383 4sp, it was a light green color. I remember him having trouble keeping clutches in it.
BTW, if you happen to hear of anyone needing an original wheel from a 68 Z28 let me know, I still have one from my old Z!
